Tombstones for the Internet Generation


Fri, Nov 19th, 2010 10:00 by capnasty NEWS

It used to be that when people of the Internet generation died, their Tweets, Facebook updates and Blog entries disappeared up to the big server in the sky. This, however, may be a thing of the past.

E-Tombs not only would provide a convenient place to store your body, but thanks to its built-in solar-panels, would allow friends and family access through blue-tooth to your virtual life. Visitors could keep each other updated with anecdotes about you or by uploading their own stories to the tombstone, read your blog or scan through your digital photos, making the visit a little more emotional as well as interactive.

Check out images of the E-Tomb on Yanko Design's website.
